Review: Create and share memes with Junaroo

Create and share your memes with the world with this iOS-focused app.

Junaroo attempts to capitalize on the unstoppable momentum of social media-based memes; and while it works, the numerous barriers to getting it set up and running can be frustrating. Loaded with dozens of free images, some new and some very familiar, Junaroo manages to make the meme creation part easy enough, but sharing with friends or posting to social networks is less so, which immediately limits the usefulness of the app.

When you first open Junaroo, you'll need to create an account, a process that is unnecessarily hard. Requiring a phone number or access to your Facebook information (an option that only worked half of the time), it takes between one and five minutes to even get the app open for the first time. From there, you can create your memes, choosing an image and filling in the captions fairly easily. You can send photos to other people who have Junaroo accounts or directly to their phone via the contact menu, but there were no Facebook or Twitter options for sharing, a major deficiency for a social meme creator.

If you want to create and share memes with friends, Junaroo will get the job done, but it is slow and unresponsive at times. Setup is time consuming, and the share options are fairly limited. Because all of these are problems the developers could fix relatively easily, the app has great potential, but in its current state is only passable.
